MODERN ORTHODOX AT JRT CANCELLED
Sadly, after much thought and discussion, Jewish Repertory Theatre has decided to cancel our production of Modern Orthodox, scheduled to run April 23 – May 17. The JCC, home of the JRT, will be closed until at least March 30 and as rehearsals would have begun March 23, and we can’t be sure when the JCC will reopen or when the city will reopen public places, this was our only recourse. We are already discussing the possibility of including Modern Orthodox in our next season and will continue to keep you updated.
For now, stay safe, stay connected and please let friends and family know that we are doing our best to keep bringing you great theatre.
Jordana Halpern, Managing Director, JRT

Jewish Repertory Theatre is thrilled to collaborate with the Kavinoky Theatre, presenting:
By Paula Vogel | Directed by Kristen Tripp Kelley
(3/6/2020 – 3/29/2020)
Indecent takes us through the history of Sholem Asch's controversial 1907 Yiddish play God of Vengeance which tells the story of a Jewish brothel owner who bribes a rabbi so that the rabbi's son will marry his daughter. The problem: the daughter falls in love with a prostitute.
Vogel's play about a play depicts the author of the original, the actors who performed in it, the controversy surrounding it and the lost culture from which it came.
Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 PM
Saturdays at 3:30 PM | Sundays at 2:00 PM
